    Panic buying fuel

    Our head greenkeeper goes over the road every Friday to get the fuel, in cans, for all the clubs vehicles. Apparently he had right barny with some one over filling cans yesterday.

    Panic buying fuel

    One of our garages no fuel this morning obviously had a delivery this afternoon. No problem with petrol in the local garage this morning, luckily as I forgot to do my usual Thursday afternoon top up but they had run out of diesel.

    Wedges bounce /grind

    Yes I do and have known this for years . Sometimes the wedges in the bag get changed just because course conditions have changed. Never particularly bothered to check a PW though, just use what came with the set.

Last 2 were about 60% off new price. (Last one £13k against list...

    Course Record.... Or not.....

    IMO Mind set is important. If I have one stroke left on a hole to score 1 point in a stableford comp say a 30 ft putt or a greenside chip I am going to approach that shot with a totally different mind set to that of the same shot in a medal comp.

    4BBB comp with odd numbers

    Tell the 3 players one of them needs to find a partner. Issue a request to all members for one additional player. Put player 3 down as a first reserve in case of a no show or someone dropping out. Tell player 3 to play all holes and have a random draw from all the other players and that...

    Why do you think it cannot go up? I know mine is now higher than it was a few months ago.

    Taylormade Sim2 Max

    A stands for Active flex. At one time it was called M flex by TaylorMade (mature player presumably). TaylorMade obviously do not like the connotations of 'Senior'.

    World Handicap System

    He can win the comp where I play but would get back less than he paid to enter as the club takes an administration fee from every comp to cover cost of engraving and trophies. We often have just 2 ladies in the Saturday ladies comp.

    Over subscribed club competitions

    Fastest fingers first where I play. Even in the shortest days in mid winter if you can get out by 12.30 pm you still have a chance of getting round. In summer the last guys who regularly play in the Saturday comp normally go out around that time. We also have a 9 hole course an there is...

    My wife got angry with me because I kept slipping golf references into our conversations. I soon putter in her place.

    Am I on to something?

    Mainly because I have enough experience to lay a club on a hard surface and form an opinion about the lie and know how to check against the strike markings on the sole. You are right 'cost is relative'.

    You Are The Committee

    All of this reminds me of why I gave playing in knockout comps with no dates fixed by the club many years ago. Twice in one year I was drawn against a player who could only play Saturday afternoons when Saturday afternoon was the only day/time of a week I could not play.

    Am I on to something?

    When it comes to lies angles a good comment from the fitter I last used - "how often do you hit a ball on the grass off a truly flat lie?"
